    I would like to order the chart for Egypt Rising. I saw it in the catalogue for Keepsake Needlearts, but when I tried to order it, I was told the kit was no longer available from them and I haven’t been able to find it anywhere else. Can you tell me where it is available? I will purchase it as a kit or book if the chart alone is not available. Thank you. Dorothy

    CHA is The Craft Hobby Association. They do large trade shows for the crafts industry. I exhibited there a while back.

    Will the Air Goddess be published in the UK Cross Stitch Collection magazine this year or next year? It seems to take between 4 and 6 weeks before we see it in the States.

    Hello Joan,
    I just love your designs…sadly there are way too many to for me to stitch…I can’t even pick a favourite…I like them all…can you tell me if your 12 days of christmas design has been previously published in one of the British magazines? It looks awfully familiar to me and I looked through my magazines, but now I can’t find it. Keep those beautiful designs coming…thank you, Isolde

      Hi Isolde-

      The 12 Days of Christmas was in The World of Cross Stitching, I think back in 2007. Design Works Crafts has also had it out as a kit for a while.

      Hi Natascha-
      This combination is not available as a chart but each dog is available with individual sayings in the book, Cross Stitch Cuties, and as a kit through Design Works Crafts.

    I am looking for your Wizard’s View in a chart form. Do you have it?? I am teaching a class, and only need that one, instead of a whole book. Thank you.

    Hi, Joan, I too love the dogs., I share my home with a 9 year old shih tzu who has attitude, but in a cute way. Haven’t done much stitching lately, awaiting the arrival of first Great grandchild a girl. so have been busy with knitting for the past six months. Hoping to get back to by projects on the back burner soon.

    I just saw the Senility Prayer from Design Works. Did you ever have it published in one of the UK magazines? I can’t believe I missed it and is by far the best Design of it.

    Oh I love the dogs Joan they have such character. Mind you I am partial to the mermaid too – gorgeous.

    I have been trying everywhere to find a copy of The Ultimate Joan Elliott Cross Stitch Collection. Is there any place you know I can obtain one. Any possibility of a reprint? From the looks if things I am not the only one trying to find it. Thanks for your time.

      Hi Debbie-
      Sorry but this is no longer available. I’m sure some will turn up on Ebay but beware of outrageous prices. There are no plans for a reprint.

    Hi, After finding and reading more comments I have my answer. On June 26 there was a reply the fairies would be ready soon. Goodie. I can’t wait to try one as I just recently saw the cross stitch magazine with the fairies and than found your website. Sorry I didn’t find the answer before asking the question. I also liked the comment about a firefly fairy.

    Joan, There are 2 kimonos designs by you I came across from Ebay or one those websites for sale. I turned around they were gone! I have the the 2 Kimono Rows (Japanese and Chinese) I’m looking for the “Japanese Cherry Blossom’ & another one “Black/Gold Dragon Oriental Floral”. Any idea where I can locate these 2 charts or kits?
    Thanks …Noemi

      I was just looking at ebay and the ‘black gold’ design is not mine. I don’t think I have done a cherry blouson kimono either so that must be another designer’s work too.

        Joan, Thank U. I was so positive they were your design. Anyway, I am very pleased to have both the Japanese and Chinese Kimono Row. They are stunning.
